That are good starting point. I made use of little registry mods. Generally in a fresh installed XP i always launched the last working XP installer (151/152) to install JAVA and then brutally extract the new .exe installer (jre-8u211-windows-i586.exe) and replace it in the programs file. The dream would be a little cmd workaround that automate the process to get last updated java. 

if you have 7zip
something  like this:

7z e jre-8u211-windows-i586.exe Data1.cab
7z e Data1.cab installerexe
7z e installerexe .rsrc\1033\RCDATA\* && ren 5 new.patch && ren 6 old.zip && ren 7 bspatch.exe
bspatch.exe old.zip core.zip new.patch 
7z x -ojre core.zip
del Data1.cab installerexe bspatch.exe old.zip core.zip new.patch 
for /r %f in (*.pack) do jre\bin\unpack200.exe "%~f" "%~dpnf.jar" && del "%~f"
jre\bin\java.exe -Xshare:dump

EDIT: no errorlevel check there oops

Just in case someone not know, the reason Sun drop XP is JavaFX8 component: Webkit isn't working (need SRW)

EDIT: found another mirror https://github.com/frekele/oracle-java/releases/ that also have tarball. So just ignore my previous post :blink:

Ya we haven't been able to install java for a long time.  All we can do is install the last version that works then copy pasta the new java in the old java folder and modify the regiestry to point to the new java.  This should work until java becomes API incompatible with XP.

You mean "fxplugins.dll"? If so, have you tested whether the version form 8u152 can be used instead, and works with all other files from 8u202 or not?

jfxwebkit.dll (note JavaFX is UI successor of AWT/SWT and whatever variant it called later)
i don't check every single updates, I have 211, 131 and 101 and the the original 21
101 is working
131 is mildly broken missing gettickcount64 (trivial to patch, tough you'll miss digital signature)
211 is the case of chrome...

EDIT: note that JavaFX isn't actually part of Java 1.8 standard Sun simply give a teaser for next Java 9, IBM Java8 implementation (J9/OpenJ9) never bundle JavaFX or OpenJFX but IBM j9 also broken on XP for different reason.

So I try 111 and 121 and certain that 111 is the last fully functional out of the box JRE8 for XP
we could however transplant javafx files from 111 into 211 (or 112 to 212) to have working JavaFX

bin\
fxplugins.dll
glass.dll
javafx_font.dll
javafx_font_t2k.dll
javafx_iio.dll
jfxmedia.dll
jfxwebkit.dll
prism_common.dll
prism_d3d.dll
prism_sw.dll

lib\
jfxswt.jar
javafx.properties

lib\ext\
jfxrt.jar

dont know if this ok but it works with javafx examples here https://github.com/controlsfx/controlsfx

Shockwave and Flash are both from Adobe, but are completely different things.
I haven't seen a site using Shockwave for years, I've no idea how widely it was ever used, and I'm amazed that Adobe still kept supporting it until very recently.
Java on sites is becoming very rare as well, and you don't really need it now at all.

Macromedia certainly originally developed Flash, I don't know about Shockwave.
They were taken over by Adobe after Flash became hugely successful and pretty ubiquitous on the web.
Sites like YouTube completely relied on it in their early days.
Things have moved on now finally though, and even Flash's days as a supported technology are numbered.
Its downfall was that it was too easily exploited by the bad guys, hence the need for its constant security updates.
HTML5 has made it obsolescent anyway, but it will be decades I suspect before Flash disappears from the web completely, if it ever does!
What will kill it for practical purposes is when all the current browsers refuse to use it.
